Is It True That Florida Is Reported To Be 2nd Ranked State For Number Of Car Heat Stroke Deaths?
Yes, a child safety organization named kidsandcars.org, rated Florida as the second highest number of vehicular stroke deaths. With Texas ranking first with 63 within the last ten years, FL does come in second with 60 car deaths related to the scorching heat. Sadly, since 2003, the organization reports that over 240 American children have died from heatstroke after being left in a hot car. This news hits every Florida resident tragically, since it’s hard to imagine that anyone would intentionally leave their child alone in a car on a hot day.
In Palmetto Florida, on June 23, 2013, a precious and innocent 3-year-old boy, Kyrese Dwayne Anderson, was accidentally left alone in a hot car, while his older siblings went inside the house of their babysitter, when his parents were attending a funeral. The toddler was reported to have been sitting in the blistering heat for over three hours. After the parents found the child, the paramedics arrived to find him dead from hyperthermia.
If a third party was involved in leaving your child in a hot vehicle, you probably have a lawsuit. Contact the Law Offices of David Benenfeld for a free consultation to see what type of compensation you may be eligible to receive.
